Bon voyage! I started the same thing about 18 months ago and made it to the summer of 71 before I gave up and started bouncing around a little bit.

I did a similar thing a few years ago, but didn't listen to EVERY show, and made it to 12/31/71. I only listened to the most popular shows, and ended up listening to around 250 shows, stopping at '71, because I desperately needed to hear different songs and set lists. So many songs I missed hearing.

It was fun, but I don't think I'll ever have a desire to try it again. It would be interesting to know how many people have actually done it all the way through. I wish Mr. Trailhead lots of luck, but I don't see it happening.

Thanks everybody, for the good words of encouragement. Not a troller or a@@hol# (even though I have been called that before ha ha, not even positive what a troller is but my kids laugh at me because I don't have a cell phone or facebook thing.) I just noticed everyday I would bounce around listening to different shows based on comments or certain songs I wanted to hear. So I decided that to really grasp the whole history, I would have to listen like it was a book. Take the good with the bad and so forth. I know it is going to get tough in spots (esp. the nineties) but even the worst years have touches of pure gold (MSG 10-14-94.) I am always listening to other new groups the former members are in; really like the Weir, Greene, and Robinson trio; anything Phil does; and going to check out Mickey at the Terrapin Harvest festival this fall; and a few newer groups esp. Band of Heathens and Gillian Welch and David Rawlings.
